We had a great turnout at the June, “pre-hamfest”meeting. Dave AB3TE gave an informative update on the BARC Father’s Day Hamfest. Volunteers are welcome–give two hours to help out the club and receive free admittance for the rest of the event. Bill N3WD gave an update on the Sharon Dobson Memorial club now with callsign W3DUH. and spoke of ARRL Field Day. Remember the upcoming W3LPL Open House. Joe W3TTT is teaching an amateur radio course as part of the Community College of Baltimore County (Hunt Valley) Life Enrichment series, coming up in a few months. Dave AB3TE demonstrated his 2-meter radio “go kit”, a padded suitcase with complete 2-meter FM radio station, including antenna and power supply.
